Crooked CPS?

  • Chicago Public Schools employees “stole or misappropriated” thousands of dollars worth of school-purchased gift cards that were intended to be used as incentives for students and families, according to an annual report from the district’s inspector general.

    In one case, a principal of a school for vulnerable students stole presents of at least “$500 in gift cards that were donated to the students and were intended to help address their specialized needs,” Inspector General Nicholas Schuler’s office found. The same principal gave to an acquaintance 30 new backpacks filled with school supplies that had been donated, according to Schuler.

    The misuse of gift cards was among a long list of alleged wrongdoing by teachers, principals and district families in the IG’s annual report, which was released Wednesday.
Who would have thought that in a monumental bureaucracy there might be a scandal or two lurking?

Unacceptable! We need teacher reform now. Order their body cameras! Form an independent review board full of citizens who've never stepped foot in a public school. March on the expressways and lake shore drive. Burn some books! Outrage I tell ya!! Ha!

Will Kimmy's team of ace prosecutors go after them like they do the police? Maybe they'll do like they do sex offenders and just ignore charging them and just hope they go away.

High resale value for the backpacks,
especially with the homeless. Willing
to exchange drugs just to look cool.

This investigation, as with the investigations by the I.G. for City Colleges of Chicago, another hotbed of corruption all raise some serious questions that need to be answered, for example: 1. What is the Tipping Point, whereby an I.G. should take criminal behavior to the State's Attorney for PROSECUTION OR RESTITUTION? 2. By what authority, does an I.G. Divert Felony Theft or other crimes, and allow the offenders to simply walk away, only with loss of job, instead of jail time? When Schuler realized what Byrd was doing he turned the case over to the FBI. Was that because the amount of money being stolen was in the millions? So if the theft is only in the hundreds of thousands, tax-payers are supposed to just take the hit? As these questions go unanswered, criminals are walking away from serious crimes, at the tax-payers expense. So in the end, the Chump is the tax-payer. Stay safe, and remember: Rahm has your back, and it is All Legit!!! Baby "G"

Can we get this inspector general to read just one email from the cheating Noble 3 F/1s from HQ. Maybe he can find what Ferguson was blind to.

Oh but raise our property taxes for these CPS thieves make them contribute what everyone else puts into the pension. Oh we hurt their feelings it’s ok they can strike again. They strike every year. If only CPD could. The IG couldn’t find a dildo in his own ass even if he was drawn a map. Thx the Democrats again.

The best part is the (fake) news is reporting that 'some' people (and folks) are merely seeking 'possible suspension or firing' of the offenders.
What about arrest, prosecution and jail time!
THAT will send the real message.
Then again this is Chicago and they'll just raise the CPS portion of the tax bill to cover the outright CRIMINAL thefts.

Oh, what a surprise. Sarc/off

No one will be held responsible, it will be pushed under the rug like all the rest of CPS scandals, and CPS will continue business as usual.

If this were a copper - holy f*ck - all hell would break loose, front page news, arrests, careers destroyed, families devastated.

God, I am so sick of the bullshit in this city.

it is not common in the private corporate world to arrest employees for minor cases of theft or fraud. They just want a resignation to avoid litigation and paying unemployment. I am guessing that the CPS thinks along those lines. The same goes for medical professionals caught stealing narcotics from hospitals and clinics ( and it does happen in great numbers). They are allowed to resign.

Gubmint grant dollars and automatic unchallengeable CPS property tax rate hikes paying for the corruption.

The kicker is that CPS never eliminated the card program and it’s STILL being utilized
and NOBODY indicted or paraded on the Fake News Media outlets.
Too ashamed to name the thieves?
No accountability whatsoever, even with the still in place corrupt BirdBennett-Claypool holdovers.
Try that anywhere else.
With 3 CPS Supts appointed, canned and one going to jail, just during Rahm’s tenure should be enough for a DOJ investigation which is way overdue.

Only in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.

These gift cards were for "vulnerable" students? What kind of students do they consider vulnerable? The kind that are assholes, cause mischief and beat on others for their personal enjoyment? The gift cards were a payment if they acted like normal kids?

The real scandal from this whole thing, besides "vulnerable" kids being paid off, is that nobody from CPS will get disciplined over this. They will just shell out more money to fund the same shitty program that produces thug children.
